Project provides ramps for people with disabilities on a sliding fee scale.
Many times this project makes the difference between an individual coming home
or living in an institution. The ramps are modular, made of wood,
require no footings, and can be temporary or
more permanent. Ramps are installed by a project supervisor and community
volunteers, this makes them cost effective (about a third of what it costs to
have a typical contractor build one).
"How To Build A Ramp"
If you live in
Northeastern Minnesota and are
in need of a ramp,
Once you apply and you are found to qualify for the project, our ramp project
supervisor will do a site visit to see if a ramp is your best solution.
If your home is "rampable" he will design your ramp (if you require
something special NOW
is the time to let him know). The ramp project coordinator will give you
an estimate for the ramp and get your authorization to put up the ramp.
Once the ramp is completed CILNM will bill you or you may purchase the ramp
This project is a multiple
Community Awards Competition winner
Please note ~
this is a community funded project, we are able to install ramps only as there
is funding available.
